    9.3x62 plains game

    I would bring the 9.3x62. First because most rifles in this caliber are handy, have short barrels, quite light compared to magnum rifles, cause little meat damage and also......lighter recoil. But its real advantage is its "killing power". Don't ask me to explain or demonstrate. This is just my...

    Is there a perfect plains game calibre?

    9.3x62 does everything you need with modern bullets. If not convinced, take a 8x68S or 300 W Mag, but they has a narrower spentrum of efficiency. Just my opinion, probably because my two 9.3x62 fit me perfectly.

    Norma VULKAN or ORYX?

    I use Oryx in my 8x57 js for almost everything form fox to wildebeest, and it works perfectly. I think the moderate velocity is what this bullet design needs to give the best of itself. The Vulcan is used here for driven hunt at short distance, working well on wild boar.

    Thoughts on the 9.3 x 62 Mauser

    I own two 9.3x62. One, you could compare to your FN, is an Obendorf built in 1914 (family herloom). Great rifle, light and handy. No scope on it, just wonderfull. I use it with Norma Oryx 285 gr which is just perfect on medium/heavy size animals. The other one is a Sako 85, with two scopes...
